Animal Behaviorist Talk on Man's Best Friend May 3
April 16, 2015
Ever wonder what a dog is thinking when it runs around in circles chasing its tail? Or how about when it gives you that guilty look?
Animal behaviorist and best-selling author Alexandra Horowitz has been studying animal cognition for years. She will give an illustrated talk on the latest discoveries in the field at 3 p.m. Sunday, May 3, at the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University. The talk is free with regular museum admission.
After the talk she will sign copies of her book, The New York Times best-seller Inside of a Dog: What Dogs See, Smell, and Know (2009).
Horowitz is an adjunct associate professor at Barnard College at Columbia University where she teaches psychology, animal behavior and canine cognition. She runs the Horowitz Dog Cognition Lab which conducts research on dogs’ sense of smell, play behavior, and attributions of emotions to dogs.
She is also the author of On Looking: Eleven Walks with Expert Eyes (2013).
“From a Dog’s Point of Nose: Animal Behaviorist Dr. Alexandra Horowitz” is the Academy’s Cheryl Beth Silverman Memorial Lecture.
